Dusty day dawning three hours late 
Open the curtains and let the rest wait 
My mind goes running three thousand miles east 
I may miss the harvest but I won't miss the feast 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
Illinois, Illinois 
Illinois, Illinois 
South California, your sun is too cold 
It looks like your hills have been raped of their gold 
I should have come out when I was first told 
This lamb has got to return to the fold 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
Illinois, Illinois 
Illinois, I'm your boy
Flat on the prairies, soil and stone 
Stretching forever taking me home 
'Cause I've got a woman who waits for me there 
And I need a breath of that sweet country air 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again 
Illinois, Illinois 
Illinois, I'm your boy
